Oikos is the experimental project formed in 2007 by Rafael Femiano and David San Martin. Initially conceived as a guitar improv experiment, the duo quickly evolves towards their cinematic signature sound, and publish their first record Ecotono (2011) on the american label Utech Records.
In 2012, San Martin moves to Moscow and Rafael Femiano remains as a solo act. After the release of Vigilia (2013, Knockturne Records), Oikos presents his second LP The Great Upheaval, co-released between Envelope Collective and Knockturne Records.
The Great Upheaval is an imaginary soundtrack for every moment in history ravaged by violence and superstition. A collection of pieces projecting landscapes dusted by seizures and turmoils. These layered compositions are packed of electricity and analogue walls, acoustic textures, drone strings and cinematic looped-movements. A sonic cathedral illuminated only by the fire that remains after battle and precedes the cult. A sonic miasma for each end of cycle.
